Never look at an ugly thing twice. It is fatally easy to get accustomed to corrupting influences.
C.F.A. Voysey

The C.F.A. Voysey Society has been founded to celebrate the achievement of the architect and designer Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941), one of the leading figures in both the Arts and Crafts movement and its immediate successors. It is the Society's objective to encourage research into all aspects of Voysey's life and work and to help to maintain his legacy.

Winsford HospitalNews

  • Voysey designed the Winsford Cottage Hospital in 1899 for Maria Webb-Medley, in memory of her husband George. Listed Grade II*, it is the only hospital that he designed and one of the very few non-domestic buildings. The Landmark Trust has now launched an appeal to restore and maintain the building for public use. More information.
